Jigawa, Kebbi Governors donate N40m to victims of Katsina market fire
Jigawa State governor, Muhammad Badaru Abubakar, and his Kebbi State counterpart, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, on Wednesday visited Governor Aminu Masari to commiserate with him and the people of Katsina State over the fire incident that engulfed sections of the Katsina central market.
The two governors announced the donation of N20m each as their contribution to cushion the effect of the fire and help the victims pick up again.
They asked Almighty Allah to replenish whatever was lost during the inferno and prevent future occurrence.
In his remarks, Governor Masari expressed his appreciation to all those who have shown concern over the incident, saying people were already making financial donations even without a formal setting up of an appeal fund to assist the affected traders.
